Today my gorgeous Husband Salvatore starts a new job and just recently we bought him a great new navy blue pinstripe D’Urban suit from David Jones in the city (Sydney, Australia). The slim cut double vent suit looks great on his slim rectangle body shape. Think Ferragamo style suit. You see my husband is Australian born from Sicilian parents and has the dark curly hair, dark brown and hazel eyes and gorgeous olive skin which is quite a contrast to my blond, very pale white skin and light blue/grey eyes. Of course I had to do a colour Analysis on him and he is Deep Winter season and so the quite clear and deep cool colours suit him. He can wear black and white really well and on Sal’s complexion the navy blue really suits.
Yesterday Sal went out to look for business shirts and really when it comes to slim fitting shirts Herringbone shirts I believe are just amazing. Pretty pricy ($180 and up) but so worth it, the cut, the fabric and the patterns are great. Even the packaging is just so classy. The good thing is that Herringbone has a factory outlet store in Surry Hills (118 Commonwealth Street, 02 9212 0678 or www.herringbone.com.au ) and until Sunday (28th of July) they are having a great SALE. The shirts are so timeless that it does not matter if they are not the latest collection and the savings are up to $100 sometimes. Needless to say that Sal brought home 3 full shopping bags with 5 new business shirts, 3 ties AND a great navy blue smart casual suit jacket to go with jeans or smart pants. Man, I was glowing from ear to ear, each shirt was just so gorgeous and mixes and matches with his suits and the new ties look great.
The other tips for guys shirts are the Rhodes & Beckett shirts, they have amazing shirts in the price range of $120 and up and look and feel fantastic. A dressed a client from New Zealand the other day in their shirts and the result was great.
Sal has a very broad chin and his face shape is rectangle and some of his best shirts are the straight or the spread collars that are not too cut away so his face does not look so broad.
If you ever wanted me to help you with analysing your shape (male or female) just send me a quick image of yourself and I will give you an indication of what your best colours are, your face shape and your body shape so you can look out for the best styles in the shops. Just email me at [email protected] . The more people know about their best shapes and colours the more we buy things we love wearing.
After Sal’s fashion parade of his new purchases he cleaned out all his old shirts and ties and together with his “Deep Winter” colour swatch with his 50 best colours all the great stuff went back in the wardrobe and the things he never wears went out the door. The feeling after a wardrobe clean up and a successful shopping trip are just great so last night I went to sleep a Happy Style Angel……..
